These very high resolution images show a global view of the Earth at different orientations with Arctic sea ice on December 8,2008 and September 15, 2008. The extent of the sea ice was determined by the AMSR-E sea ice concentration data. The terrain shows the average land cover for the related months over the continents. (See <a href="http://www.nasa.gov/vision/earth/features/blue_marble.html">Blue Marble Next Generation</a>) The global cloud cover shown...

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 29 Commander Mike Fossum of NASA and Japanese Flight Engineer Satoshi Furukawa discussed their mission and their view of the planet from 230 miles above the Earth with noted environmentalist Dr. Jane Goodall during an in-flight interview on Sept. 19, 2011. Topic: What -- Earth
A wide and vigorous active region produced several flares as SDO observed in extreme ultraviolet light (Nov. 11-12, 2010). The tangle of magnetic field lines, made visible by particles spinning along them, connected and reconnected several times. Since the active region is facing towards Earth, it may produce geo-effective events in upcoming days.
